The cold from Hell continues, though it seems to be winding down through a nasty cough phase, where my lungs are congested and I cough a good deal (but it’s not, er, productive). As it winds down I can begin to contemplate observing again. Unfortunately it appears from the local ClearSky clock that the next time we’ll have viable skies will be around 3 or 4 am tomorrow morning. I’ll have to consider that carefully – it’s still a working day after the observing’s all done, and I have a strange desire to be awake while I’m at work. Working with this cold has been difficult enough!
